What can analysts, journalists and bloggers do with this data now?

We’ve been pretty liberal in the past with our data for use by analysts and the press, occasionally helping with some custom queries and such. Frankly, we love the idea of Open Hub data informing articles, blogs, and analyses. But our old Terms of Use prohibited using Open Hub data for any commercial purpose. And we know that some people have interpreted that as meaning they couldn’t use Open Hub data without permission. So we’re calling out this use case in our new Terms, so there is no mistaking that we’re eager for our data to be used in preparing editorial content.
